Weekend reminder and an amazing new arrival list from The Charleston Beer Exchange!

Big Hoppy Firkin Saturday (10/2)
Don’t forget, this Saturday (tomorrow) at 2pm we’ll be tapping our next cask (firkin) of real ale for growler fills!  This time we have a unique specialty from Terrapin: Cherry Oak Big Hoppy Monster!  The base beer, Big Hoppy Monster, is an 8.3% ABV imperial red with massive hop flavor that scores a nearly perfect 99 rating on  This one off special cask version was aged on cherry oak for a true once in a lifetime experience.  These one off casks are always a blast and a tricked out version of one our all time favorites is sure to be a hit!

If you have never been to one of our special cask ale releases before, it is beer in it’s purest form: conditioned in the cask and free of force carbonation, filtration or other processing.  Real cask ales allow the beer to showcase different nuances of texture, flavor and aroma than their normally kegged counterparts.  Unlike our regular growler fills, cask ale is highly perishable and must be consumed the same day so plan accordingly!  We will gravity tap this cask on the counter at 2pm and growler fills of this beauty will be limited so don’t wait.

They have lots of new and exciting things going on at The Charleston Beer Exchange this week!

A Special Evening With Dr. Joel From New Holland Brewing
This Friday, April 10th, from 5pm to 6pm they are very excited to host Dr. Joel from New Holland Brewing Company. For those unfamiliar, Dr. Joel is the beer ambassador a.k.a. “The Beer Beast From The East” for this great brewery out of Holland, Michigan. At 5pm they will be tapping a very special and very rare keg of Brother Jacob’s Belgian Dubbel for growler fills. This will be the only appearance of this beer in the state of South Carolina. Dr. Joel will be answering questions and talking about his beers as well as handing out fun New Holland swag. Go say “Hi” and get a growler of this great beer! Click here for info on New Holland Brewing and Dr. Joel

Cask Event Saturday
This Saturday, April 11th, at 2pm they will be tapping a special cask of Foothills Dry-Hopped Torch Pilsner. This is only a 5 gallon firkin, so it will only yield 10 or so growlers. This will be first come, first serve. As a reminder, cask ale is very perishable and must be consumed the same day, so please plan accordingly.

Rare Beer Tuesday / Racer X Redux
On Tuesday, April 14th, at 5 pm they will be tapping their second and final keg of Bear Republic Racer X. This rare and delicious double IPA was very popular at their last tapping and sold out quickly so get there early or send someone down for you!
